TMZ is reporting that Kim Porter, a model, actress, and former longtime girlfriend of music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, was found dead on Thursday. She was just 47 years old.

A representative for Diddy, with whom Porter shared three children in addition to an eldest son with singer Al B. Sure!, confirmed Porter’s death to the gossip news site.


“I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” said Cindi Berger.

A source told TMZ Porter had been fighting a bout of pneumonia for the past several weeks. A 911 dispatch call to Porter’s home, which was shared by the site, had emergency personnel responding to a patient with cardiac arrest.

Porter is survived by her four children: sons Quincy Brown (27) and Christian Combs (19); and twin girls Jessie James Combs and D’Lila Star Combs (11).
